PAGE TEN THE CATALINA SCIENCE SEEKS WAY TO MAKE CHILD OBEY A scientific formula for teaching children obedience is being diligently Sought by child psychologists through- out .Ammrica, but the latest reports from their studies admit a certain de- gree of bafflement. Perhaps, they sug- gest, there really is no single rule, no royal road, no ready-made means, for bringing about a perf, ect result. "The problem of enforcing obedi- ence seems to bother all parents," Dr. Frank H. Richardson reports in the Woman's Home Companion. "It is a problem that lasts throughout the span of dependency that we call child- hood; it concerns the father of the toddler quite as much as it does the father of the adolescent; and its solu- tion worries the mother of the prim- ary school child, the high school girl, and the college freshman to an equal degree. "If the problem is so definitely to the fore at all rhese stages of childhood, we may well believe that its solution is no{ to be found at any one stage. Obedience is a growth, a ~tevelopment, an unfolding; and it will be obtained, or will fail of attainment, according as it is given or denied the opportunity to grow from the very beginning. This does not mean, as is so oftcu optimis- tically asserted, that if only the very young c'hild is once taught to obey, all his troubles along this line are over and his parents need take no further thought for the cultivation of obedi- ence in him. On the contrary, the bat- tle is never won; we can never rest on our laurels; eternal vigilance is the price of success." The fact that a child is obedient at One stage of his development has of coarse the greatest influence upon what he is to be at a later stage; but it does not with certainty follow that he will be a model off obedience at twelve just because he was one, or seemed to be one (not always the same thing, by any manner of means) at two years of age. ODD WATER SUPPLY Near Tonopah, Nev., the Longstreet mine, now being operated by the Crown Beef Consolidated Gold Mining Company, and widely known for the colorful career of its locator, Jack Longstreet, has the most singular wa- ter supply of any mine in the vorld. Developed to a point where it was ready to produce, a mill erected and practically all of the mineralogical and metallurgical problems solved, h'ae wa- ter shortage developed. Several springs three miles distant were acquired, a gravity pipe line was built and the water turned on. One of the strangest of desert mysteries appeared. The water came rushin~ out steaming hot. Then came the dis- covery that rhree of the springs were cold and two were hot water. The management uses cold water in the summer-time and hot water in the cold weather. 16,000 CRIMINALS Dr. E. A. Hooton, whose "Up from the Ape" ($5.0(t) is a recent Maegail- lan book, is conducting an intensive study of the physical characteristics of criminals. He says. that he first be- came interested in criminals at rhe age ~( 21 and spent two summers in the \Visconsin penitentiary as boss of the convict gang in the warehouse. Later, when he became an anthropol- ogist, 'he determined to try to find out if there is a relation between the physical type .f the criminal and the nature of his crime, also whet'her cer- tain races or nationalities admitted to America rnn up more than their share of our crime bill. Dr. Hooton and his assistants have collected data on 16,- 00(I criminals in the institution of ten states, and he expects the investiga- tion to take two years more. __;f).__ Small Customer (to butcher): "Half a pound ofl steak, tough, please!"

This is the third year in ~ghich these competitive tests between American cities have been carried on and California nmnicipalities have shown an active interest, each year, in the contests. A large number of Cal- ifornia cities have enrolled each year and some of rhem have succeeded in winning marked recognition for their advances in public health administra- tion. Last year Alhambra won first plffce among cities in its same class of population. San Francisco, t'asadena and Palo Alto also received honorable mention in their respective groups. Other California cities have received honorable mention in preceding con- tests. The plan for 19.:11 is similar to the plans that were used in 1929 and 1930. As before, a city will compete only with cities of its same popula- tion. The groups, according to popu- lation, will be as follows: Class l--Cities over 5(ll,tX)0 popula- tion. C}ass 2--Cities bctweeu 250,1)00 and 500,000 pol)ulation. Class 3--Cities between IIX),000 and 25(I,000 population. Class 4--Cities between 50,{~)0 and 10(),0()0 polmlation. Class 5--Cities between 20,{~,10 and 50,000 population. Class 6---Cities under 20,00() p~q,ula- tion. The data required in the competi- tion will cover the period from Jann- ary 1 to December 31, 1931, inclusive. A fact-finding schedule which will in- clude questions covering the items on which the contending cities are to be graded will be sent to all entrants. This must be filled out and returned to the Insurance Department of the Chamber of Commerce of the United States, Washington, D. C., as soon as possible after the close of 1931. The main items considered in the schedule are: the organization and equipment of the local healrh department for dis- ease control; financial support, both official and voluntary; facilities for health information and education; wa- ter connections; sewage disposal; and milk supply. These contests have provided great- er interest in public 'health administra- tion in the various communities which have entered. A noteworthy feature of the 1930 contest was that every winning and honor city in 1930, which taad competed in 1929, showed a de- cided increase in score for the second year of the competition. In many cases the increase was as great as 30 or 40 per cent. It is hoped that a large number of California cities may become enrolled in the 1931 contest. CALIFORNIA CONSCIENCE William L. Cherry forged three checks back in 1917. He was convict- ed, but escaped in a couple of weeks. Joining the army and goiug to France, he was wounded twenty-two times and cited for bravery. After 'honorable discharge, he came to San Francisco as a policeman and helped hunt down other felons. Then he went to San Quentin--as a guard for other forgers. But his conscience finally got him and he returned to Cincinnati and con- fessed. He said it brought him, the first real night's sleep 'he had had for fourteen years.---Los Angeles Times. "TOP OF AMERICA" NOW ACCESSIBLE Mt. Whitney (elevation 14,4% feet above sea level), the highest peak in the United States, is now au avail- able goal fi~r wtcationists since the re- cent completion of a trail by the United Slates Forest Service, accord- ing to George H. Cecil, executive sec- retary of the Conservation Associa- tion of Los Angeles County. "A jour- ney to 'his hoary peak may now be made on horseback," says Mr. Cecil. "Formerly it meant an arduous climb on foot." 74.4% Of World's Autos in U. S. Of all the automobiles in the world, 74.4% are in the United States, ac- cording to t'he National Automobile Club.
